This was my first visit with this office and my doctor and it was for a annual gyno appointment. I have always maintained a healthy weight, but in the last two years I have gained roughly fifty pounds due to my disordered eating habits (the biggest symptom of my depression) and some recent personal trauma. I'm aware of my weight gain and am working to get back to a healthy weight, but I felt condescended by my doctor. She implied that my weight gain was due to lack of exercise since it's been cold outside, as if I was being lazy, which couldn't be further from the truth as I typically exercise every other day. On my "new patient" paperwork, I wrote that I was struggling with my mental health (depression, suspected eating disorder) and was surprised at her lack of sensitivity to that regarding my numerical weight and BMI. When I was being weighed at the beginning of my visit, I asked the nurse to not tell me my numerical weight as I prefer not to know- she was happy to do this, and perhaps it was my fault in not asking her to communicate this request to my doctor, but my doctor did tell me how much I weighed. Additionally, I told my doctor that I was anxious about my pelvic exam because it makes me physically uncomfortable and once again, I don't think she was very sympathetic or respectful to that.

Sandra was fantastic however it took almost three months to schedule an appointment for a gyn issue.

Sandra Alway was very kind, knowledgeable, and she explained every step of the procedure she did so that I could understand. I did not feel rushed by any means. she was also very compassionate when I talked about my health issues. it was one of the best experiences I've had at a doctor's office.

December 20, 2018

She is very friendly and took plenty of time with me. However, most of my medical concerns were flippantly blown off as post-partum or not valid.

Ms. Alway was very helpful and answered all my questions.
